Are you tired of bread yet? I hope not. This is (maybe) the best bread I made with the brioche dough. We all loved it so much that I made it twice within a week. If you already have the dough ready, this is a super easy recipe. It’s a bit tricky to explain the braids, so look at the pictures, or also go back to my challah post where I did the same style of braids.
As I wrote on Monday, you can do a lot with brioche dough. Here is the first recipe I want to show you. It is so easy and so customizable.
These were so good. Even days later. I had never thought to try chocolate cinnamon rolls before but there was a recipe with other variations that the Fudgelet saw. He wanted us to try them, so that’s what I did. I spent some time in the evening making the dough, then let it rise during bedtime things and finished it when the kids were asleep. Then I baked them for our lunch.
Today I wanted to share a few recipes I made when my dad and M came to visit last month. I asked my dad for some ideas to bake since I wanted to make two treats to take care of two months of desserts that I make him (I usually ship them but fresh is always best). He picked muffins and scones, so I made some muffins for while they were here and made scones to take home (we ended up freezing some of each to take home). The biscuits I made were for their first dinner here. They were coming straight from the airport at rush hour/dinner time, so I wanted food ready for them. I made sous vide salmon, broccoli, and biscuits.
I know…it isn’t strawberry season, but I still wanted to share these. I used a recipe from Smitten Kitchen and also a recipe from a cookbook. But to be honest, I can’t tell them apart. I’m not positive which recipe came from which place. I think the ones directly below were from a cookbook and the circle ones were from Smitten Kitchen. I think.
I had saved this recipe to make and I wasn’t really sure what these would be like, but we ended up enjoying them. I was curious how they related to popovers and apparently are almost identical depending on your recipes. From what I could gather, this tends to be the savory version of a popover. But I’m sure I’m wrong on some level there, too. That was my best interpretation, in case you’ve made popovers before. I liked that I didn’t need a special pan or special ingredients. Everything was stuff I have on hand, and you could mix up the herbs.
Today is a simple recipe that was inspired by some puff pastry recipes I found. I ended up doing my own using some Trader Joe’s dough I had stashed away. If you haven’t tried their puff pastry dough, you should. It’s only available around December, as far as I know, and not only is it a great price but it tastes really good because it is all butter like the DuFour kind. But for whatever reason, I like this one better and have had better luck with it. I didn’t realize it was a limited edition kind of product the first year, so the second year I stocked up!
